Mediterranean Ceramic Days at Fontana Rosa in Menton

From April 20th to 21st


The Mediterranean Ceramic Days at Fontana Rosa bring together amateur and professional ceramic enthusiasts from all over the Mediterranean in a ceramic village in the heart of the Hispanic garden on Viale Blasco Ibàñez in Menton.


Exhibition: I Remain with You

On the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of the death of Jean Cocteau, the museum that he himself conceived as a testimony to his art is returning to its historical setting.

Jean Cocteau died on October 11, 1963, leaving behind a work as rich as it is incredibly varied. The question of his posterity and the future of his art was one of the main concerns of the artist in his last years of life, and Menton provided the solution by offering him the Bastion to set up his museum. In this showcase, decorated by Cocteau himself, he wanted to exhibit some of the most emblematic works of his dazzling career: colorful pastels, monumental tapestries, surprising paintings, and bold ceramics constitute the original collection of this true testament museum…


Not to mention the famous series of “Lovers,” drawings that perfectly embody the Mediterranean inspiration of the artist. Sixty years after the death of the Prince of Poets, the Jean Cocteau Museum – le Bastion has returned to exhibit his historical work, paying a vibrant tribute to his protective artist, embracing the words he wanted inscribed on his tombstone: “Je reste avec vous” (“I remain with you”).

Exhibition Living Art, form, movement, color

From March 16th to May 18th

Exhibition presents a selection of abstract, expressionist, and surrealist works presented at the Biennials of Menton, a key event for artistic creation in Europe in the second half of the 20th century.

The new exhibition at the Galerie des Musées du Palais de l’Europe, Living Art, Form, Movement, Color, presents a selection of works presented at the Biennials of Menton, a key event for artistic creation in Europe in the second half of the 20th century.

The aim of the exhibition is not to provide an overview of the Biennials, but to focus on painters who have embodied a new form of Abstraction or who have revisited their relationship with the world. Most of these artists came to the fore after the Liberation, supported by young gallery owners, and achieved success and awards in art fairs and biennials around the world.
